Misbah proves that age is no barrier to completing Test Match centuries

 October 24, 2015   John Welsh

, , , ,

During the First Test match between England and Pakistan in Abu Dhabi, Misbah ul Haq was accused by many cricket experts of nearly gifting the English team an unexpected victory by losing his wicket after attempting an audacious shot when discipline was needed. He was the only recognised batsman remaining, as wickets tumbled around the […]

Bad Light controversy denies England victory in First Test against Pakistan

 October 19, 2015   John Welsh

, , ,

After four days of limited excitement during the First Test between Pakistan and England in Abu Dhabi, the fifth day provided quite a contrast with wickets tumbling, and a controversial finish denied the English team an opportunity to claim an unexpected victory. Fading light ensured that a draw was the eventual outcome with England failing […]

Adil Rashid claims an unwelcome record as bowlers toil during England test match with Pakistan

 October 16, 2015   John Welsh

, , , ,

With just 11 wickets falling and 813 runs scored in three days of cricket, it is quite evident that the pitch produced at Abu Dhabi for the first test between England and Pakistan is not helping the bowlers, as the English batsman closed the day on 290-3 chasing the Pakistan first innings total of 523-8 […]

Pakistan Win T-20 Series With The Second-Match Thriller Against Sri Lanka at Colombo

 August 5, 2015   R K Gupta

, , ,

In a space of three days, Pakistan won twice against Sri Lanka in the two T-20 matches and bagged the series 2-0. Both games were played at Colombo’s R Premadasa Stadium. While the first game on July 30, 2015 had an authoritative Pakistani stamp, the second played on August 1 was an edge-of-the-seat last-over thriller. […]

Australia Overcome Middle-Over Pakistani Scare and Set up a Clash with India in the Second Semifinal in Sydney.

 March 22, 2015   R K Gupta

, , , , ,

Pakistan won the toss but lost the early advantage. Their openers, who excelled against Ireland, fell easy prey to the Australian pace battery. Only Misbah-Ul-Haq fought as he had been doing in CWC 2015. With Haris Sohail, Misbah attempted a rescue mission and added 73 runs for third-wicket. That was the highest partnership in Pakistan’s […]

CWC 2015 Match 42: One Victory for Pakistan Sends Two Teams in Quarterfinals

 March 19, 2015   R K Gupta

, , , , ,

One month ago, when Pakistan lost its World Cup opener against India, major Pakistani cities witnessed rioting in the streets as if the nation had lost the World Cup even before it could properly get underway. In reporting that match on these pages, this author had written that Pakistan could still qualify for the knock-out […]

South Africa Stunned by Pakistani Bowlers in Match 29 of CWC 2015 at Auckland

 March 8, 2015   R K Gupta

, , , , ,

It was strange that South Africa made the choice of fielding first after winning the toss. All their victories in the CWC2015 have come, when they batted first and set targets. They lost to India, when Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat. But yesterday, de Villiers had been lucky with the coin toss […]

Match # 25 of CWC2015: Pakistan Batsmen Shine In an Easy Victory Over UAE

 March 5, 2015   R K Gupta

, , , , ,

Close on the heels of their labored 20-run victory over Zimbabwe, Pakistan flew out of Brisbane to meet UAE at far away Napier for the 25th match of the 2015 ICC cricket World Cup. Mohammad Tauqir won the toss for UAE and asked Pakistan to bat first. Tauqir might have been pleased, when early in […]

Pakistan Keep QF Hopes Alive with Tense Win Over Zimbabwe in Match 23

 March 4, 2015   R K Gupta

, , , , ,

For the third time running, Pakistan’s batmen failed to piece together their innings. It didn’t matter that they faced a comparatively weaker opposition. To Zimbabwe’s credit they pushed Pakistan to the wall after taking out the top six batsmen. 162/6 in 40 overs can only be regarded as too uncompetitive in CWC 2015, where plenty […]

Massive West Indies Victory Over Unimpressive Pakistan in Match 10 of CWC

 February 22, 2015   R K Gupta

, , , , ,

After winning the toss, Misbah-Ul-Haq asked West Indies to bat first. The decision looked sound, when both openers were back in pavilion by the 8th over, including the dangerous Chris Gayle. 28/2 at that stage seemed to justify Pakistan captain’s decision. Darren Bravo and Marlon Samuels went into the act of resurrection and added 75 […]
